I love painting matchboxes and filling them up with little things that go with the theme of the box. Here are some of my favorite matchboxes that I have made. Not everything in the matchboxes are handmade though. Some of the stickers are handmade, I made them by printing out my doodles on labels and cutting them out. The stamps are handmade and so are the felt objects and the wire bird nest.

I paint them with acrylic paint. The matchbox template I found online here: http://blog.swap-bot.com/rachels-matchbox-template/





Here are some more:



This one is probably my favorite!

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

These are wonderful! I love all of them.

Your drawings are adorable and I really like all of the bright colors and super fun little goodies you put inside.

Thank you for the inspiration Smiley.
